Love Island viewers watched as the fishmonger stayed far away from the new bombs as Casa Amor turned up the heat.

Luca told Gemma, 19, that he was eager to stay true to her during the week-long relationship test and not have his head turned.

He was seen sleeping outside on the daybed away from the new girls, which many felt was a sweet gesture proving his dedication.

But others have speculated that there is a hidden motivation behind Luca holding on to the professional rider – and that has to do with her famous father, former footballer Michael Owen.

On Twitter, a fan started the debate by suggesting that Luca was just eager to meet the former Liverpool and Man City striker.

“Okay, but can we applaud this man for his dedication to meeting Michael Owen,” they wrote along with a photo of Luca.

Another added: “Of course he will fake it until the show is over.”

“Luca is getting ready to meet his idol,” said a third, while a fourth said yes, “Desperate for the signed t-shirt.”

Early in the show, Luca was seen asking Gemma about her father as they sat and got to know each other for the first time.

She replied that she had no doubt that he would “get well out of it” with his father, who she said also liked sports – but did not name him.

A viewer wrote at the time, referring to the Owen family: “Luca obviously knows who Gemma’s father is. He’s trying to hang up his fishing boots and relax in the mansion.”

Fans felt that the man who coached Gemma’s father, Michael Owen, was the reason for his “intense” hunt for the star.

“Makes you question how and why Luca became so intense,” one said on Twitter after it was revealed that Luca knew the truth.

“His obsession and interest in her happened AFTER the boys found out who her father was on day 3,” said another.

Earlier this week, Michael Owen admitted he wanted a “face-to-face” chat with Gemma’s love interest Luca.

Michael, 42, is apparently hopeful, Luca is the right item for his daughter, and hopes he stays faithful during Casa Amor.

A source told MailOnline: “He’s seen a couple of the episodes, and from what he’s seen, he thinks Luca and the other guys on the island seem like pretty decent guys.

“But if Luca ends up officially going out with Gemma, he would definitely like to meet him and decide on the guy. Any dad would.”

The insider added: “He is proud of how well Gemma is doing and knows how good she is and that she will not do anything she is not comfortable with.”
